Women are seldom rejected, but each time they have been rejected, there was nothing like their fury. Two classic examples are Lady Potiphar who was rejected by Joseph, and Tamar who was rejected by Judah. Nonetheless, everyone is rejected at some point in life, but the difference is at the level of reception and reaction. How should you react when rejected by a love interest.
For some, I will say smack the dust off you feet and go you way, for they do not even merit your love. If a woman wants you, she will give you no reason. If you live in a hole, she will follow you into that hole and if you live in the sky, she will fly with you; however, if she does not want you, she will give you 101 reasons and will tell you how you speak like like Mickey Mouse. For others, you give a little bit of patience, knowing that it takes some people time to make up their minds.
However, if someone does not show you interest, leave them alone. Don’t kill yourself because someone rejected you, for you have only one life; meanwhile, you can find their replacement in life. Everyone in life will be rejected at some point in time. Not everyone is married to the person they truly love and though they did not marry the person they truly loved, they are still very happy. Stay patient because some day their replacement will come. If you die, you will never live to see their replacement and prove to them that they made a bad choice. You need to stay alive to show them that despite them, you are happy and perhaps they are not. I say stay alive and not die.
Writers are aware of how publishers rejected them. E.E Cummings’ manuscript was rejected 15 times before it was published by his mother. If I close this exordium without alluding to the master of rejection: Jesus Christ, then I have failed in my purpose. The prophet Isaiah in chapter 53:3 wrote “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”
Therefore, stay alive for in life in general, it is not everyone who will like you or accept you. It is not everyone who will believe in you, and it is not everyone who will follow you in what you do. Why keep any love that is like a dove in the cage when it is future heartbreak? No matter what you do to it, it will fly away if you open the cage. True love should be like the flesh of your flesh and bone of you bones; it is going no where, no matter how much flesh and how many other ribs are out there. Once more, I encourage you to rise above your rejection and stay alive. If you are running after the person you love for five miles and he/she does not seem to wait for you , give up, for you may be chasing the wind. Do not run after a woman as if she does not see you because if she wanted you, she will run after you too even if you were in a hole. Ask God for the key of life, and you will live in abundant life.
Until then, may God bring your true love.
